Mattie Brice: Our Flappy Dystopia (mattiebrice.com)

Mattie Brice:

We, as global, national, and artistic communities, justify a lot of shitty things on the premise of making money. This industry justifies sexism, racism, and all forms of discrimination and oppression because of some unwritten right to make money. Why can’t we have equal representation of minorities in our media? Because someone wants to make money.

The article is prompted by the Flappy Birds incident, but the point applies generally, and of course not just to games.

I have this anxiety over film-making that the cost-of-entry is just too high, and negates even the possibility of some peoples stories getting told.
